Panch phoron (Five spices mixture) recipe


Panch phoron or five spices mixture. I use this spice mixture in many of my recipes.  Panch phoron is used in many parts of India specially in Bengali and Assamese cuisines. Five spices are equally mixed together to make this spice recipe.  Panch phoron we can buy it readymade from the market.  But I like to prepare it at home. Because one that we buy from the market doesn't contain equal amount of every spices. I always notice more fenugreek seeds than other spices. So it's better to prepare it at home and always keep it in an airtight container.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 tbsp of cumin seeds (jeera)
  • 1 tbsp of nigella seeds (kala jeera)
  • 1 tbsp of fennel seeds (saunf)
  • 1 tbsp of fenugreek seeds (methi)
  •  and
  • 1 tbsp of carom seeds (ajwain)*


*You can use black mustard seeds instead of carom seeds.

METHOD:

  1. Mix all five spices together to make panch phoron.
